Day in Wallingford
I went to Wallingford on Sunday and took Amy, Kristen, and Dane out to lunch in celebration of Amy’s birthday.
Amy’s present from me was a framed poster I had taken from a 1930’s Grade Teacher magazine. It showed an owl exhorting everyone to “USE GOOD ENGLISH.” It may sound like a strange gift unless you know my daughter.
I also gave the kids little back to school goody bags.
These were filled with tissue packets, hand sanitizer, pencils, tape, white boards, book marks, and magnets for keeping track of important papers on the the fridge. And of course some M&Ms just because chocolate never hurts.
We went out for a birthday lunch. It was a gorgeous summer day. I am not saying the grand kids are hyperactive, but it is good when we can get an outside table.Dane was turning on the charm. “Has anyone noticed how beautiful my mom is in her new blouse?”
K. will be starting grade six this week. D. starts full day kindergarten after Labor Day. Time flies.
